Fall Book News

We have some news to share about the Fall doings at Simple Pleasures…

 First the BOOKS-

Answering customer request ( as we always try to do) , we are filling out our Jim Butcher & James Patterson sections. The Butcher section is just about complete ( that’s the Dresden Series as well as his Codex Alera series) We are also trying to fill in all the requests for everything James Patterson, and that’s some tall order- let me tell you. From what i understand Patterson is cranking out a whopping sixteen books this year- yes, you heard it right  – 16 ! We’re going to do our best to keep up, and keep our Simple Pleasures readers happy

September is Crime , Mystery & Intrigue Month at Simple Pleasures, and to highlight that we’re showcasing two authors that fit that bill. John Wills was here on September 12th signing copies of his books ” Chicago Warriors” and the newest ” Gripped By Fear” . We had a good time hosting him, and the crime scene tape was only a fun prop. 🙂

This Saturday we’ll be hosting  Meredith Cole who will be meeting fans & signing copies of her novel ” Posed For Murder” .

The central character in this novel Lydia McKenzie will also be featured in a sequel that’s coming our in early 2010, so maybe we can get Meredith to give us some advance tidbits about the new one as well…

 In October we will see the release of a a bunch of great new books, David Baldacci will be releasing ” True Blue”

True BlueSynopsis below from DavidBaldacci.com:

A high-profile murder in the nation’s capital collides with the dark side of national security in True Blue. “Mace” Perry, a firebrand D.C. cop, lost everything after she was kidnapped, framed and jailed. Now she’s free and working with lawyer Roy Kingman to investigate the Washington homicide. Release date: October 27, 2009

Also, for those fans of the  Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris , or you spent the last 2 summers getting hooked on HBO’s “Trueblood”  and want something to hold you over or ( like me) you want to read the books even more than watch the series, Penguin is releasing a box set of the first 8 books. It features the True Blood outer packing and the original cover art

 Cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse is no typical Southern belle. She can read minds. And she’s got a thing for vampires. Which, in a town like Bon Temps, Louisiana, means she’ll have to watch her back—and neck…

Dead Until Dark
Living Dead in Dallas
Club Dead
Dead to the World
Dead as a Doornail
Definitely Dead
All Together Dead
From Dead to Worse

For those of you who have been anxiously awaiting Patrica Cornwell’s next Kay  Scarpetta novel, wait no longer! Okay, you have to wait a little longer- but if you would like a personally autographed , first edition copy of her newest Scarpetta come into Simple Pleasures and pick up one ! We will have a limited number of these special copies, so get them while they last !

And of course no New Release List would be complete without the news that we have “The Lost Symbol” in stock .

Special Events:

During the Month of October- in addition to our ongoing “Fall Into Books Raffle” , ( which is a great chance to win some fun prizes!) we are doing a special promotion called

Bodacious Women.

This promotion serves two purposes- 1) It showcases books written by and/or about women who have led or are leading extraordinary lives. These women are trailblazers, innovators, or have overcome insurmountable odds to emerge triumphant. They are or were in their own ways – BODACIOUS!

In celebration of them and in acknowledgment of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we will choose & recommend selected titles and when one of these titles ( that will be identified by a pink ribbon) is purchased 5% of the proceeds will go to local area Breast Cancer Research.  That’s the second purpose , and one we feel is just as  worthy as the first.

We will be posting more about this later, of course. In concert with this promotion we will be hosting women authors who have written books that are part of our chosen titles all through the month of  October . More about that later too…

It’s shaping up to be a very busy Fall, and I didn’t even get to November yet… or our special Halloween Day signing, and all the accompanying fun that will go along with that!

But … more later  🙂
